This course is split into 5 levels, and a lot of the content I’ve never dealt with before.
Level 2 (Cold Closures Cove) which is described as “Explore the binding of external variables into local scopes” is something completely new to me, and I had to use the hint button several times in the challenges for this section.
As well Level 5 (Plains of Prototypes) was somewhat of a challenge as well. as it included Array, Object, String prototypes, which again is something I have never used in the past.
Part 1 was pretty basic including topics such as arithmetic operators, and intro to the console.
Part 2 was a bit more difficult, but just a quick refresh of topics I’ve done in the past including while loops, for loops, arrays, and function declarations.
On Tuesday, and Thursday I completed the six levels of the Code School second jQuery Course The Return Flight.
This course had introduced a bunch of jQuery functions that I haven’t used before. Some of the functions included map, detach, event.namespace, trigger, extend, and plugin.
As well this course had several challenges with ajax, which was something I have used a bunch in the past mostly with forms being posted to multiple addresses.
In the fall I was introduced to Code School through an AngularJS tutorial on angularjs.org. Every course usually consists of a short video 5-10 minutes long, followed by a 5-10 minute exercise that needs to be completed to move on. I like it’s setup, in comparison to various video tutorials that don’t give much of an opportunity to actually code.
Last night I started, and early today I completed the jQuery course Try jQuery. I would estimate that 90% of the course was a refresher, but I used some jQuery elements for the first time such as jQuery Data.
My Code School activity can be tracked via my Report Card Page.
